More information: Recorded in London in August 1973, Genesis fifth studio album, Selling England By The Pound, was released in October that year on Charisma Records. It reached No. 3 in the United Kingdom and No. 70 in the United States. The single, ‘I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)’, was released in February 1974 and became the band's first top 30 hit in the UK.
Despite having only come off their previous, Foxtrot tour a couple of months before, following the release of the new record, Genesis set out on the road again in September ’73, starting off in Europe, but crossing to North America in early November, where they drew an enthusiastic reception from fans.
Generally considered one of the finest shows of the entire Selling England tour, the concert they performed at New York’s Felt Forum on November 22nd 1973, remains a favourite amongst fans.
Featured in its entirety on this new 2 CD set, this magnificent performance is featured here on disc for the first time. Bonus cuts here feature a session Genesis recorded for the Top Gear show on Radio 1 in September 1972, the band’s final ever BBC session.
